Prior to reading this I scoped out the reviews. It seemed that those that hated the book were expecting it to be a refresher on the Alice in Wonderland story, turned zombie. I have to admit, initially I kind of thought that too until I read the description. I think that had the title been different that may have alleviated some of the bad reviews. However I also see how the title fits into the story and I like how Ms. Showalter included little innuendos from the original literature. That said, I think this story was very original and for that it quickly jumped up my ratings list. It was well written and a fun read. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next and quickly finished the book. I really look forward to reading the sequel.
